morning at 3:36 at about a 2.2. it's a microquake, a small quake. so far it looks unrelated but, of course, all these fault systems are transferring energy in between each other. there's a chance that one could have been affected by that earthquake on sunday, as well. that's the latest here, guys. back to you. >> thank you. napa slowly getting back to normal after sunday's earthquake as students finally return back to the classrooms today. kpix 5's anne makovec is live up in napa now where schools have become dumping zones over the last few days. good morning, anne. >> reporter: good morning. i'm here at napa high school and just within the past half- hour, a crew came in and started cleaning up this huge mound of debris here behind me and they are making very quick work of it by hand and also with large machinery right now. so it could be cleared out in time for schools to start here this morning. school sites have been used here in napa for trash dump sites over the last few days.

classroom hours to get funding. is there any impact on that funding because of the two days missed because of the earthquake? >> reporter: there is an emergency clause in that rule. so they are not going to lose out on any funding from the state. live in napa, anne makovec, kpix 5. >> the shaking scared a lot of pets and many are missing. now there's a facebook page to help find them. people can post photos of lost and found animals on the missing pets of napa quake page along with their contact information. the napa animal shelter says it's also picked up a lot of dogs. aftershocks are still shaking the napa area. the strongest was a 3.9 at 5:33 yesterday morning. the usgs last night updated its estimates on the chances of more earthquakes. and it says the risk of a 5.0 aftershock over the next seven days has now fallen to 12%. it was 54%. the risk sunday's quake was a

anyway, right now we are getting first reports of a new one southbound 680 at sunol boulevard. we don't know if lanes are blocked but there's slowing in the area. in the meantime, we have big backups already beginning in hayward. they cleared an earlier accident but a traffic jam with speeds under 25 miles an hour in the southbound lanes. the backup begins around whipple continuing down to decoto. all lanes are open. if you are traveling in oakland, things are great. mobile 2 drove through a little while ago through the downtown oakland exits. everything is clear northbound between 238 and the maze, you can see that drive time. traffic backed up quickly this morning or i should say early this morning out of the altamont pass and livermore valley. never fully recovered, no big incidents, a minor stall for a while. the drive time is heavy for the last 15 minutes or so. half-hour almost a half-hour between the altamont pass and the dublin interchange. that's your latest "kcbs" drive
to work. with the forecast, here's lawrence. we have some hot weather coming here for you. i know how you like that, liz. it's going to heat up in the valleys today, not at the coast. out the door we go. we have some clouds early on but it's very patchy this morning along the coastline and just inside the bay and a few patches in the north bay valleys into santa rosa. otherwise, it is going to become mostly sunny and getting hot away from the coastline. toward the weekend, though, we can expect some slight cooling and a few subtropical clouds coming our way could get a little interesting. low pressure now kicking to the east. high pressure taking over. so anywhere away from the immediate coastline, these temperatures are going to get hot today. 99 in fresno. 95 in sacramento. 101 in redding and 92 in yosemite. into the monterey bay 74 degrees. patchy fog along the coastline early on this morning. by the afternoon, that starts to break up and then surging back onshore into early tomorrow. so that means a little cloudy early but after that more sun on the way and another hot day in the valleys again tomorrow. temperatures today about 91 in
morgan hill. 81 in san jose. 60s along the coastline. east bay looking at some upper 80s, some mid-90s in the hottest spots there. then inside the bay 76 in oakland. 71 and mostly sunny in san francisco. your sunrise times 6:36. sunset at 7:46. looking out over the next couple of days, we are going to keep things hot inland, patchy fog along the coastline, a little bit cooler could get interesting a little subtropical moisture coming our way this weekend. >> i guess the waves are up, too. surf's up. >> big waves in southern california. even here the waves are going to be larger the next couple of days. >> thank you. kpix 5's roberta gonzales is live in san francisco somewhere this morning. >> yeah. roberta, you're helping kids in need get ready to back to school. >> reporter: that's right. you know what? i got to tell you something, i don't remember ever having a backpack when i was a kid going to school. all i remember is i used to go to school in a covered wagon and frank was driven by a model t. but anyway, kids are going back to school in napa most of
them after the earthquake. most are going back to school this week or next week in a staggered start and many kids don't have all the things that they need so that's why we call on eric mcdonnell and he is from the united way. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, roberta. >> thank you for beeping here. >> reporter: a pleasure, thank you. >> reporter: tell us about the backpacks. >> we are excited to be able to create these opportunities for all of our students to go back to school fully equipped and ready and unfortunately, in these difficult economic times, many families don't have the resources they need. >> reporter: so you at the united way, what do you put in the backpacks? >> we put in them paper, pencils, glue sticks, you remember erasers? >> reporter: so some things don't change after all. >> pink erasers. note pads, rulers, we give them crayons. we want to make sure that when our students return to school, they are fully equipped and ready to learn. >> reporter: how do you pick what students get the opportunity to receive these backpacks? >> the core mission of the united way is to cut poverty and so we work with low-income families across the bay area.
so we have thousands of families who are in need and so we can use all the help that folks are willing to give. >> reporter: how can i help? i really want to help a student go back to school and have everything he needs. >> it's very easy. jump online. you don't have to go anywhere. just open up your laptop, computer, tablet, go online to an online store and buy all the supplies you see here. >> reporter: we are going to make it easier for you at the united way. we hooked you up, go to kpix.com and click on "links and numbers." and we will show you the way to the united way and what you will be able to help contribute to a child that needs everything he needs supplies- wise to go back to school. reporting from san francisco, roberta gonzales, kpix 5. the woman who repeatedly tried to sneak on planes at sfo is at it again this time in phoenix. coming up at 6:30, details of her latest arrest. ,,,,,,
good morning, everyone. june 13, 2012, matt cain threw a perfect game. last night, his teammate madison baumgarner was trying to join him in the club of perfection. baumgarner had the best start of his young career. giants and rockies scoreless in the 6th, and then buster posey, you can tell it good-bye. two-run shot. posey homered again in the 8th. in the 8th, justin morneau with the best batting average in the national league reached out and got it. a double and it's the only run allowed by baumgarner all night. the only base runner allowed. he struck out the side in the eighth and got brandon barnes to end the inning on the strikeout. a career-high 13 strikeouts. a career-high 13 strikeouts.

would enter production in 2015. that compares to the current models which are 9.7 and 7.9." now, the key catalyst for making the bigger ipad will be to go after enterprise customers. businesses looking to replace traditional laptops and apple has entered into a partnership with ibm so this would likely be a result of that partnership. ipad sales have weakened for apple in the past two quarters. the tablet market overall has exploded and there are just a lot of competitors out there looking for your dollars. the big question on wall street is, when will federal reserve raise interest rates? and most don't expect that until sometime in 2015. the "associated press" surveys a number of economists and most of them think the fed is going to wait too long and wind up stoking inflation or creating asset bubbleses such as with the stock market because interest rates have been so low. most of those economists agree with the fed that the labor market is still fairly weak considering how many millions
of long-term unemployed are out there. as well as millions of people that are working part time when they would prefer full-time work. the market had another record close. the s&p yesterday finishing at 2,000 for the first time. today looking at a flat early beginning. let's check the big board see how we're doing so far. the dow is up 2. nasdaq is down 1. s&p down a fraction down to 1999. frank and michelle, back to you. >> thank you, jason brooks from kcbs news. new this morning, some budget watchdogs have written an open letter warning five states not to offer too many incentives to tesla. california, nevada are among the states competing to be the electric carmaker's new battery production plant. kiet do is live in tesla's manufacturing plant in fremont with details of that warning letter. good morning, kiet. >> reporter: good morning. those watchdog groups are calling this competition among the stays a race to the bottom with no clear winner. it's easy to see why california, nevada, arizona, new mexico and texas were all
vying for this $5 billion gigafactory because it comes with 6,000 new manufacturing jobs. but tesla wants the winning state to pay at least 10% of the cost of the factory, or $500 million. they promise to fast track environmental permits and other financial incentives. several groups have banded together to urge lawmakers to tap the brakes. a letter says it is time to break the harmful pattern of one state winning a high- profile competition. the main goal is the long term growth of american jobs not any single state's ribbon cutting. talk to each other, let the public into the process. strike a smarter deal that will preserve the tax base for the benefit of all. here's carl with the silicon valley leadership group from earlier this summer. >> we have known about solar companies that did almost the same project in california that took four to five years. and the same project in
